National Homebrew Week 2014: schedule of events




In true NHC spirit we have so many events we are spilling out from just a week to nearly 10 days.  From local homebrew tastings and meetups to full on brewing demonstrations of all-grain, extract and kit brewing to hop harvests and camp fires  – the first National Homebrew Week will have something for every level of brewer. If you are only starting out with the hobby or are an experienced master there will be something for you. Meet other brewers in your area, chat with more experienced brewers and taste what it is all about. Join us to learn about home brewing. Below is our preliminary schedule of events which kick off tonight. We will be updating this page as we get closer to the Big Brewday of October 4th where we have simultaneous events island-wide.
